Hazy appearance. Very hoppy aroma and great strength. Nice bite on the palate. Bready citrus taste. All in all very acceptable.

Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Glowing crystal-clear amber with a thin white head. Tropical notes up front, a friendly warming caramel middle then pine in the mildly bitter finish. A little too much Cascade for my personal preference by the finish, but theres no denying that this is a very tasty and well-balanced brew and well worthy of its high score on this site. Had it just after the very good and quite similar Hilden Mill Street, and this was just a little step ahead on all counts.

Cask halfpint at the Brewery Shades, Crawley. 5.7%. Golden color, white head. Distinct hoppy aroma, notes of citrus and pine. Refreshing hoppy flavour, tingling fruit (esp. citrus) and pine needles. Good beer.

On tap at CP&K. Light haze on this gold beer. Little white head. Light crisp palate. Trace of creamy malt. Mild tropical fruits with tinned peaches most noticeable. Nice contrast of bitterness at the end. Minerally crisp finish. Decent.

berkshirejohn (6279) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Cask at the William Webb Ellis (JDW), Twickenham. Pale amber with a tight white head; aroma of apricot jam; starts with some fresh leafy hops, then a honeyed fruity sweetness, then the hops kick back in again with a sustained, prickly, drying finish. Good stuff.
